It was announced late last year that FX guru John Carl Buechler was planning a big-budget remake of one of his own directorial efforts, TROLL. While most of the time, I sigh at the announcement of another remake, this one sounds OK. Buechler himself is involved and the film (with an estimated budget of $25 million) is going to be independently financed. So, if the director wants to redo one of his own films 20 year later and improve upon it, I’m all for it!
Today, word came in via E! News that Lidsay Lohan’s little sister Ali Lohan auditioned Eunice St. Clair, who helps Harry Potter Jr. (Yep, TROLL has that character first) fight the evil Torok the Troll. According to the article Buechler told E! "She was great. The camera loves her. She’s a really good actress…I am personally going to fight for her." Also attached is Noah Hathaway. More when we hear it!
